Whether you’re a fan of 80’s movies like Robocop or Back to the Future, or you like to follow on newer releases like Avatar or The Dark Knight Rises, there is always a treasure trove of costumes available for your favorite heroes, villains, and everyone in between!
If you choose a newer movie, be prepared to bump into people that had the same idea as you, which may take a little sizzle out of your presentation. It’s always better to go with something a little older – not new enough to be outdated, and not old enough that no one will know what’s going on.
If you have a significant other in your life you can kill two birds with one stone by choosing a costume that will work together. You could be Julius Caesar and Cleopatra, a light switch and a light socket, a full size beer and a bottle opener – there are a ton of different options for those that want to go tandem, so just do a little research and decide whether you want to be funny or sexy. From there it should be an easy enough task to get a set of costumes that shows off your personalities.
Sexy is Always In
Many people joke that Halloween is nothing more than an excuse for the fairer sex to choose a “sexy” outfit. Whether it’s a witch, a beer maiden, a princess, or a bunny, it seems that there are no shortages in sexy outfits from dozens of different merchants.
If you’re a guy you also have options, with the past few years seeing an increase in outfits and costumes for men that show off a bit of skin.
One thing to be aware of if you go this route is that not all attention is good attention – so make sure that you are in a safe place with people who won’t read your outfit as an invitation.
Some of the best costumes for Halloween are the ones that you can’t get anywhere else. If you have some time, ambition, and are decent with a thread and needle you can make yourself a huge amount of different costumes that can really take the cake!
The great part is that you don’t even have to start from scratch if it’s too daunting – there are dozens of different sewing patterns available at your local fabric store.
